Finding My Way

Painting #1 Intuitive abstract

Oh what fun it is to discover that painting intuitively is my true calling. I brushed on a yellow, red and several blues, spayed and then trusted that my painting would appear. I know this sounds crazy but I knew instinctively how to sculpt this piece.

Painting #2 Intuitive abstract

The photo doesn’t do this particular justice. Originally the orientation was one way but as I turned it around, I liked this one. Again, I followed my intuition to the very last. Paintings #1and #2 were painted on Saunders waterford hotpress. I am planning on purchasing more of this paper, it is simply divine working with it. I say working with it rather than on because it seemed like the paper and I were working as a team.

Painting #3 imaginescape

I started this one as an intuitive piece and added the crags as an superimposed image, kind of cool if I must say.

Painting #4 autumn colors in Sierra County

I had been struggling a bit with my reality paintings and was growing frustrated with them. I decided to let it rip with abstracting this scene.

Painting #5 Autumn colors in Sierra County

This one was painted before the previous one and was tighter. I was getting lost in the rocks and that prompted the looser version.

Painting #5 North Yuba past Downieville

One of the tighter paintings while I was in one of my angst over “what the heck should I be doing!?” Haha typical vicious cycle of mine.

Painting #6 abstract

Oh boy, I loved painting this abstract. I was getting to the point that I needed to calm myself down with a little abstraction. It worked.

Painting #7 crazy wild abstract

Oh yeah, so fun to let go and see what happens with my intuition. I am still unsure about that circular shape but then someone pointed out to me that it is the black hole! I never know where my intuition will take me, it is never boring.

Until next time, take time to enjoy what makes you happy, life is short.

May Oh My

Painting #1

I have had some fun these past couple of days enjoying getting back to painting intuitively. For some reason lately I feel that I need to get it perfect and that is when I noodle a painting to death. The above painting was one that I painted while in between these moods.

Painting #2 Sierra Buttes

I am excited because I had garnered some interest with this painting. It might be the one chosen to be used for a concert poster. I sent the interested music group about five different choices, so we will see.

Painting #4 Blair Lake

I haven’t been satisfied with my paintings lately as I mentioned, I feel that I have been over painting them. I am going to take it slower and also I have decided to work on setting them aside for a few days or longer in order to keep my perspective fresh.

Well that’s it for now, enjoy May!
